We did a birding trip with Happy Warblers to Monterey California in August 2013.
We used a motel in Monterey as a base and visited a number of State Parks and hot birding locations in the area. The highlight of the trip was a Pelagic boat ride in Monterey Bay With Monterey Seabirds where we saw many pelagic species, including a "Jaeger Slam" (three species of Jaeger + A South Polar Skua). We ended up with 115 Species seen by the group. Photos of 58 species are in this gallery
